Every time a tattoo question gets asked, in gauging attraction levels, the guys on here generally vote that they prefer their women to not have any tattoos or to have very small and minimal ones. While some say tattoos aren't TOTAL deal breakers, a vast majority say it puts them off completely.
But the females are more than fine with it, and rarely do you see any say that it'll be a deal breaker or that the guy should have small and minimal ones if he has any at all.
Just an observation I've made the past 1+ year I've been on this website.
As a lady with 8 tattoos myself, this kind of baffles me that so many guys on this website particualry think so negatively about women with tattoos. I've been nothing but complimented and even called sexy because of some of my tattoos elsewhere (in person and other websites).
Why is this? Why do you think that men on GaG are often repulsed or turned off by tattoos but the women on GaG are indifferent or even more turned on from tattoos?
Do you believe its because the boys on here have it stuck in their brains that tattoos are inherently a manly thing? If this isn't YOUR reasoning, men reading this, then please disclose what exactly it is that makes tattoos a turn off for you.
Furthermore, for the ladies: do you think other women lose any kind of appeal towards men when you notice they've got ink? Like, does it give you a sense of having a leg-up, per se, in the dating game if you yourself don't have any?
Also if you're a lady: if you DON'T like guys with tattoos, why? And is it a strict deal breaker like a lot of guys on here paint it to be for them? Or are you quite lenient?

There are certainly plenty of guys who like girls with tattoos - both here on GaG and out in the world - but I'd say they are definitely the minority, even though their numbers have grown over the last decade or so.
But you also need to factor in a couple of things: the guys who approach you out in the world are self-selecting - guys who see your tattoos are either attracted to them and approach you or are put off by them and don't, but that means the ones who approach you are heavily biased in favor of liking girls with tattoos. It's no different than any of your other features: height, weight, hair length, body type, boob size, butt size, etc. Guys can see those things from across the room, and the ones that like what they see approach you, and the ones that don't, don't.
The other thing to consider is that the guys who approach you are sexually attracted to you - they want to bang you - and so even if some of them are put off by tattoos, their desire to bang you means they'll pretend they like them in order to get into your pants. I see guys do this stuff all the time. You can't go by what guys say when pussy is on the line, because most will lie if they think it will help them get some.1

Im totally stealing from someone else's comment lol but some guy said
A lot of guys here on GaG seem to like "clean" women, as in no tattoos, no piercings, no drugs, no drinking heavily, no casual sex, etc. Why are all these guys on here (including me)? I don't know.
That is because in my view anyone who spends so much time online like a lot of regular users do here, they tend to have idealised certain things and their tastes in women have not changed and evolved much from since they were younger and in many cases they are not experienced not saying the user i quoted from is inexperienced lol i do not know him. So a lot of the guys on this site especially the regular known by face users on here are reserved in their views on women from lack of socializing very often as in my experience socialising helps evolve and develop your taste in things you didn't even know you would like :) Many guys on this site still have this perception of innocent untouched pure girls as they have an unrealistic view of women, and a girl with a tattoo is not pure and clean so they would say they want no tattoos or very few.0
